PDIC & LCV Instructor Courses

Note: this course is only available to MTA members

In order to receive the best training, please review the following course outlines and pre-requisites to determine what courses are necessary for you or your employee.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION – Please note that the MTA owns the PDIC and LCV curriculum in Manitoba and all rights to it. The MTA offers PDIC and LCV instructor courses to carrier companies who are MTA members so that they may certify in-house instructors to train and test their own drivers. The individual taking the instructor course from the MTA maintains the certification for the carrier company so long as they are

  • employed for that company,
  • meeting the pre‐requisites for instructor certification,
  • and meeting the ongoing certification requirements
  • Instructors are required to train at least one new LCV driver per year. ALL training records must be sent to the MTA.

This means that certification cannot be transferred within the company. This also means that should the instructor change companies, their certification is void. This also means that if ongoing certification requirements aren’t being met, such as registering drivers trained with the MTA, their certification is void.


After the initial training is completed, carriers must ensure that they review their permit conditions with the driver and issue a certificate (wallet card) indicating they have reviewed permit conditions, current regulations, the operators’ drivers’ abstract and any issues pertaining to the operation of LCVs. This certificate must be issued with a one-year expiry date. The review of permit conditions must be completed at least annually.
